About the Artwork
Coventry’s works engage with the utopian ideals of Modernism which have been physically manifested in architecture, design, town planning and the fine arts since the beginning of this century. His resulting works conflate the aspirations of a cultural, political and social past with the realities of the present day. His sculpture explores the wasted parts of town; taking the junk of urban life and casting it in bronze. Bench is the skeleton of a park bench, and was one of the objects Coventry encountered during years of wandering through London thinking about art.
